Purpose

The New York Breast, Cervical, and Colorectal Cancer Services Program (CSP) provides funding to implement breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening and follow-up services in order to reduce morbidity, mortality, and health-related disparities among residents of New York state.

Required activities include:

  1. Implement a program to provide free breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening, diagnostic follow-up services and referrals to treatment for uninsured and underinsured women and men who are at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level and meet other program requirements
  2. Assist with enrollment in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program for eligible individuals diagnosed with breast, cervical, colorectal, or prostate cancer
  3. Conduct needs assessments and identify, develop, implement, and evaluate interventions to increase breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening and address barriers among priority populations who are disproportionately burdened by an increased risk of cancer and/or who are medically unserved or underserved. Such individuals include those who experience barriers to services due to sex, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic location, socioeconomic status, cultural isolation, low literacy, and language.
  4. Engage with healthcare providers/systems to implement evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions
  5. Collaborate with Department funded contractors from other cancer screening-related initiatives that address structural barriers and offer cancer screening
